The Silk Mill Bar

Welcome to

The Silk Mill Bar


Our Story

Previously known as The Besom, our old customers have been astonished by the transformation. Under the guidance of Mark Jackson, the building was reduced to a shell by top local builders O & W Crashaw Ltd and has been rebuilt and refitted to incorporate a large repositioned bar and much extended lounge area. Fixtures and furnishings are ‘top drawer’ and the decoration reflects the theme of silk.

Hidden Gem

To the rear of the building is a hidden gem; a walled beer garden with extensive seating accessed by a single flight of stairs with a covered and heated smoking area. To the side is a newly resurfaced car park with extensive ‘overflow’ parking next to that. For customers peace of mind there are security cameras throughout with images clearly visible in the bar..
